Review 1 for Heroes of History: Clara Barton, Angel of the Battlefield
Date:March 11, 2009
Very exciting, page-turning book! Lots of facts, but, very interesting too. My daughter has a new Christian hero which was my goal. A great choice for a school book report! I'd recommend this book to every parent I know for their children!

Review 2 for Heroes of History: Clara Barton, Angel of the Battlefield
Date:July 2, 2008
Like all of the Autobiographies written by Janet and Geoff Benge, this book was well written and packs massive amounts of information in a fast paced, page turning narrative. It was hard to believe that Clara Barton, a painfully shy and withdrawn child and teenager accomplished so much in her lifetime! All because she was tenacious, had faith and never gave up. She was splendid in character and used love and kindness as a way to get things done. There were also detailed information about the battles in the Civil War that I appreciated. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
